This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.
My name is Suz Steece.
I am a registered nurse who works 3-4 days a week.
I have 3 year old quadruplets who attend school twice a week.
My darling diva of a daughter is in dance and tumbling twice a week.
Life. Is. Busy.
Here is a sneak peek of my schedule from 7a to 7:30p:
- bathe quads, dry hair, lotion
- make breakfast, feed kids, prepare lunches & backpacks
- dress kids, squeeze on 4 pair of shoes
- finish getting myself ready, dry hair, makeup
- load up and drop kids off at school
- head to work at surgery center for 5 hours
- pick kids up from school
- get home, give snacks, get Savannah ready for dance
- load up all the kids and head to dance
- entertain boys while we wait for Sav for an hour
- class ends, head home
- eat dinner
- play with Dad, brush teeth
- story time, prayers, bedtime
PHEWWWWWWWW! Tired yet?!
And we will only get busier- with more activities to cram into our daily schedules as the years go by!
There are 2 very important things that get me through each day (and enable me to maintain my sanity):
(1) time management & (2) multi-tasking
I thank the good Lord for making me an extremely organized person (I have always LOVED a good spreadsheet…it’s a wee bit sickening, I know). Especially with quadruplets- you HAVE to be organized and efficient.
Spending as much time as I can with my beautiful children means the absolute world to me…
…that is why I am always looking for ways to DO MORE FASTER! For example: less time spent on the computer = more time with my little buddies.
